Yes, HERE Maps is way easier to use for this purpose. Just download the app from the Play store and then you can download the offline maps for any state or country in the world.
There's an open-source GPS track recording app called GPSLogger. It has shortcuts to start and stop, and also publishes the necessary intent details, so you can start and stop recording without having to interact with the phone. You can also configure it ahead of time (via the app's settings) to save files in various formats and/or upload to Dropbox, ...
As you already mention Tasker, that should be possible with this alone – though the profile might be a little tricky (complex) to build.
